Harbour was awarded the design-build contract for a new operations facility at LyondellBasell’s plant in Morris, Illinois. The project consists of a new free-standing 90,000 SF multi-purpose facility that consolidates several plant divisions under one roof, maximizing internal efficiencies and communications.

Blast-Proof Precast Construction

Harbour created construction logistics plans that were successfully executed to build while having no interference with day-to-day operations of the existing facility. The exterior walls were constructed of 18” thick blast-proof precast concrete panels, with blast-resistant glazing and doors.
